Am I lucky, or what?

I just traded my 2011 Laredo X for a 2014 Limited earlier this month as it had gone past the extended warranty. The person who purchased my 2011 works at my dealership and is familiar with its trouble-free service history. This week I dropped in and he told me that the condenser for the temperature control had ruptured causing the coolant fluid to run out onto his driveway.

I assume that this will be a costly repair. Very happy that I decided to trade when I did.

Anyone else ever had this issue with their WK2?

You are lucky. That's one of the issues I haven't had, but I'm sure it will be added to my growing list.

Strange, the only claims that I ever made on the 2011 had to do with an oil pressure sensor and the power door lock actuators. Two were replaced over the 4 years that I had it.

Did you trade a timebomb for another timebomb?

If I did trade a time bomb I have an extended warranty to find out.
